LOV will soon celebrate its 4th birthday and deserved to be refreshed! The main improvements are:
- The use of tags for vocabularies instead of hierarchical categories (e.g. for “Time” http://lov.okfn.org/dataset/lov/vocabs?tag=Time).
- A fast full text search feature over 469 vocabularies as of today (http://lov.okfn.org/dataset/lov/vocabs), 46.000+ terms (http://lov.okfn.org/dataset/lov/terms), 462 agents (creators, contributors, publishers) (http://lov.okfn.org/dataset/lov/agents).
- A wide range of APIs (http://lov.okfn.org/dataset/lov/api) to access all LOV data. NOTE: the search v1 service API has now been shut down.
- A fast and unique SPARQL Endpoint containing LOV records and the latest version of each vocabulary (http://lov.okfn.org/dataset/lov/sparql)
I would like to thank Bernard Vatant, Ghislain Atemezing and Maria Poveda for the tremendous work they do at curating the Linked Open Vocabularies.
LOV is generously hosted by OKFN (http://okfn.org/) and has been supported by the Datalift Association (http://datalift.org/), Fujitsu Laboratories (http://www.fujitsu.com/ie/research/linked-data-research-team/), INSERM (http://ics.upmc.fr/) and Mondeca (http://www.mondeca.com/).
Hope you will enjoy a new LOV experience
